    Rabbit fact

    Was just reading an article on rabbits.

    Based on a 9-10 month breeding season from Jan-Feb to Sept-October
    30 day gestation
    Litter size from 4 to 10 babies,
    the fact that does can breed from 6 months old
    they can breed as often as every 6 weeks (6 times a year!)

    The article suggested that one female rabbit could have as many as 600-800 rabbits, grand-rabbits, great grand-rabbits in a single year!!!

    and they can live for 9-12 years!!

    rabbits born in March will breed in August, those born in April will breed in September etc etc!

    ....apparently it is the same for benefit scroungers.
    By three methods we may learn wisdom:
    First, by reflection, which is noblest;
    Second, by imitation, which is easiest;
    and third by experience, which is the bitterest

    There something not adding up in that calculation.

    Rabbits on my permission have taken a nose dive in numbers a few years back and have not recovered at all.

    It can be quite a suprise to see one at night let alone shoot one

    Rabbits can have a litter every 30 days in ideal circumstances!
